Every online submission is viewed by Big Brother Canada’s rock-star casting team, and to help online applicants stand out from the pack Big Brother casting director Robyn Kass offers the following tips:

1. Don’t plan too much and talk naturally.
2. Make sure your lighting and sound work properly.
3. Stay away from the same Big Brother clichés we hear time and time again, such as: “I can be your best friend or your worst enemy,” or “You either love me or hate me.”
4. Tell us something unique about yourself that will make you stand out.
5. Have a good time!

Airing exclusively on Global early in 2016, Big Brother Canada plucks a group of hand-picked strangers from their homes, sequesters them from the outside world, and places them inside a house outfitted wall-to-wall with cameras and microphones that capture their every move. Competing for a grand cash prize, each week the houseguests battle in a series of challenges that give them power or punishment, voting each other out until the fate of the final two is decided by a jury of fellow houseguests.
